We have a local restaurant chain here called "cook out"...and it has cheap food, standard fast food fare...burgers, hotdogs, shakes, fries....anyway, there is always a line wrapped around the building and overfilled parking lot

Now the "Cook Out" smacks you in the face....EVERY thing has scripture on it, the cups, the wrappers, the napkins...walls decorated with jesus BS...it truly is sickening...I couldnt leave fast enough. If Chik-fil-a was like that, I wouldn't eat there, but it isn't so I do Smile

Cook Out's milkshakes are so freaking amazing, that a little Pat Robertson bobble head could pop out of the cup and tell me I was going to hell, and I'd still go there! Honestly, I never even noticed the bible verses until a couple of months ago. I thought it was something new.

As for Chick-Fil-A, I did boycott for a while after the contributing to bigoted organizations scandal broke, then when it seemed the whole thing might have been overblown, I relented. I go there occasionally. Their sandwiches are delicious! In general, I couldn't give 2 shits what the religious beliefs of businesses are. It is as irrelevant to their ability to provide goods or services as my atheism is doing my job. A local Chick-Fil-A franchise owner did tell my atheist family member that she should fire him when she found out he was an atheist. When he pointed out that that would be quite illegal, she backed down. I did not visit that particular store while she was running it.

Yeah I normally could care less either unless it is on an exceptionally obnoxious level like my local Cook Out. My wife and I went to the Cook Out, and just sat there while eating nudging each other and nodding to all of the bible references while exchanging wtf looks. We do a lot of bed and breakfasts, and one was obnoxiously covered in jesus shit in our room.....didn't say anything, just will never go back there again. I often wonder how they would feel if they rented a bed and breakfast room, and in their room was ISLAM propaganda wall to wall, with a copy of the qu'ran on the bedside table.....

That gives me an idea about how to get the insurance company to pay for this property I can't unload without committing arson. Thumbsup

I've been to our cook out only once, & don't remember seeing any of that..... I need to have another look, & if the coast is clear: another shake.

RE: Should I feel guilty for eating at chick fil a?
I've never eaten there. But I probably would. I generally don't care to mix politics with food! Smile
I'm pretty convinced it don't really matter where you spend your money because it'll be used for something I don't agree with regardless.
Billy won't eat at chick fil a because the use the money to hate on gays. Billy must sacrifice the flavour for his convictions.
Billy also don't want to pay taxes because the money is used to kill brown people (can be considered a greater crime than just hating people) but Billy's convictions aren't so strong in this case. Billy will stand up when there is no or very little cost to him but he will say nothing if it costs him much. Billy doesn't actually care about chick fil a (it's fillet) or what they do. Billy just likes to be outraged about things. Billy likes to be noticed and he really wants the cute granola girl to notice him. Billy is on the path to become a SJW. Soon he'll be shouting about cis white males and guys saying "hello" to women they don't know. Meanwhile all across the world people are suffering and dying from starvation, sickness and horrible people but it costs to much for Billy to do anything about any of that.... Wink

Take caution that that which you justify today does not become tomorrow's system of justice.

Know what would be cool? An SJW sound-bite generator. Like Chopra's got. Evil_monster

Excuse me, I'm making perfect sense. You're just not keeping up.
